HOUSE DEAL or NO DEAL - It has been House Deal or No Deal this week at Stoke Park School where staff and students have pitched themselves against the banker in battle to win as many house points as they possibly could. The audience grew bigger and bigger as the week went on as word of mouth spread about the school that this was an event not to be missed!! First off for Lynx, Miss Maloney (with the help of Leah Perkins) tried her hand and left with a modest 50 points. This was far better, however, than Mr Salisbury’s attempt to only win the lowest value of 5 points for Eagle, although Laila Cosgrove (pictured) did try her best to help!! Things really started to take off when Mr Grimwood, with the help of Mikul Chauhan (pictured), played the perfect game and won 200 house points. However, it was Griffin on Thursday who really stole the show with Miss Branagh and Xander Griffiths winning a massive 225 house points in an exhilarating atmosphere.
HOUSE PUMPKIN CARVING COMPETITION - Over half term, pupils are encouraged to ask those at home for their contribution to their house with pumpkin carving. The better the design, the more points you will get, and every entry will gain your house 10 points. Things are very close at the moment, so believe us when we say that every point matters!! When we return after half-term, there will be netball shooting competitions, netball tournaments, dodgeball tournaments, things to do at home and finally our big event which will be Christmas Lip Sync Battle.
SPORT UPDATE - This week the weather has seen to a couple of fixtures being cancelled, so only our Y10 football team played this week but they managed a 6-1 win over Ernesford Grange with a man of the match performance from Jay Whelan. After the half-term, all year groups will be participating in cup competitions and hoping to progress to the next round of the cup. The KS3 rugby team had a friendly fixture against Westwood Academy on Wednesday and despite playing well as a team, they were narrowly beaten by the opposition who were much more organised and well drilled.
